Charlie Worsham (born September 1, 1985)[1] is an American country music singer and songwriter. He is signed to Warner Bros. Records.

Musical career[edit]

Worsham was born in Jackson, Mississippi, and grew up in Grenada, Mississippi. A talented young musician, the Mississippi Senate recognized Worsham in 1999 for his outstanding musical accomplishments, as well as being "a model student who makes straight A's".[1] Worsham attended Grenada High School, and then Berklee College of Music in Boston.[2]

Worsham joined the band KingBilly, singing harmonies and playing mandolin until 2010. He is prominently featured on the band's only extended play recording "Waiting On You." Though the band received some local fame in Nashville and a featured spot on Great American Country's GAC Minute, they never broke through to mainstream radio, and disbanded in 2012 with all members pursuing solo careers.[3]

Worsham toured with Taylor Swift in 2011,[4] and has opened for performers such as Miranda Lambert and Wade Bowen.

He released his debut single, "Could It Be," for Warner Bros. Records in 2013. The song appears on his debut album Rubberband, released on August 20, 2013. The album features Vince Gill and Marty Stuart on one of the tracks, "Tools of the Trade." [5] The album's second single, "Want Me Too", was released in late 2013.

On January 17, 2014 he appeared in the episode Big in the Philippines of the FOX TV Series Bones as the murder victim. His song "Love Don't Die Easy" was also featured in the episode.
